in gardening in the neighborhood are improving. 

  I'm not always so kind-minded as you: two years ago, a young deer ate my 
one most beautiful off-white Iris.  I was upset, but figured, at least it had 
contributed to the animal's life.  Then he spat it out; the taste did not agree 
with him.
  Some time later, adding insult to injury, some body broke off the leaf fan.  I 
hope the rhizome survived; it did not bloom last year.  I hope it does this
